Rather than use more electricity, quantum computers will reduce power consumption anywhere from 100 up to 1000 times because quantum computers use quantum tunnelling. When you compare it 1-to-1, the cooling needed may seem like it uses more power, but a quantum computer will not replace a single device, but rather an entire server farm.
It depends on the number of qubits it can handle, but quantum computers are expected to be at least 1000 times faster than a conventional computer. However, Google announced it already has a quantum computer that is 100 million times faster than any classical computer in its lab.
No. Classical computers are better at some tasks than Quantum Computers (email, spreadsheets and desktop publishing to name a few). The intent of quantum computers is to be a different tool to solve different problems, not to replace classical computers.
NISQ is a commonly used term to describe today’s quantum computers, which are “noisy” (i.e. prone to errors that can accumulate and lead to incorrect computation) and are of intermediate-scale (i.e. these devices have tens to hundreds of qubits).
Noise in the quantum computation process caused by undesirable external and internal factors that might lead to errors in the computation. As Quantum computers evolve, the noise should be reduced and results will become more and more accurate.
A computing technique for dealing with errors in quantum computers that exploits encoding across an extra (large) number of qubits to reduce errors rates.
A sequence of quantum operations applied on multiple qubits. It is an ordered sequence of quantum gates, measurements and resets, forming the basis of quantum algorithms.
A collection of quantum circuits to run on a quantum computer to find a solution to a problem. Quantum algorithms are the engines of quantum applications. One algorithm can be the basis of multiple applications in different industries.
Quantum sensors measure the world around us as accurately as physically possible, reaching far beyond the limits of current tools. Think super-accurate GPS locations, measuring the gravitational waves that are generated when black holes collide or the precise behaviours of electrons when chemical compounds bond together.
Quantum Sensors will start to come to market in some niche medical and defence applications within three to five years. And in a world that is increasingly reliant on sensors and sensing, they have the potential to provide a significant competitive advantage.
Communication takes place through quantum entanglement, the coupling of properties of two remote qubits. This coupling, and thus the communication, is fully secured by the laws of nature. Using entanglement in quantum networks also allows for other use cases, such as distributed quantum computers and blind quantum computing, where only the user is aware of the remotely executed quantum computation.
Quantum entanglement can be used for communication by taking advantage of the unique correlations exhibited by entangled qubits. We can use entangled qubits to create instantaneous agreement on information across very long distances.
Cryptographic algorithms thought to be secure against attacks by quantum computers. Being prepared for such a future will be important as quantum computers become more readily available and critical information needs to be kept secure.
Through regular updates, courses, events and online community happenings, Quantum for Business will connect the companies and universities that develop new quantum technologies, with the businesses that can use them.
The Netherlands is one of the leading economic clusters due to an excellent knowledge position combined with a burgeoning start-up and industrial ecosystem and a highly developed national policy. The national foundation, Quantum Delta NL, was recently awarded €615 mil from the ‘Nationaal Groeifonds’ to implement the National Agenda for Quantum Technology (NAQT).
The ambition is to make the Netherlands a Silicon Valley of quantum technology. The place where new technology is developed, and a high-tech industry is created.
